I had been looking for something in turquoise that was different from the typical design, and these fit that perfectly.
They are Adorable
They are light weight--but not so light they you wont notice them. --they sway gently when you move your head. Love the detail in them and the fact that they are doubled sided. I bought these little bats for myself.

About Handcrafted Jewelry
Men and women have adorned themselves with jewelry since long before the age of reason! Garlands of flowers, bracelets of woven grass, shells, and stone; such were the first decorations to beautify the human body. We may have been wearing jewelry as far back as 75,000 years ago - 30,000 years earlier than previously believed - according to a recent report by National Geographic News. Over the millennia, jewelry styles and materials have evolved in step with the advances of civilization. From the Stone Age to the Bronze Age, from the Iron Age to the Industrial Revolution (and seemingly back again!), jewelry styles have transformed, modernized, and then often returned to their most basic forms and essential elements.
